Friends of Joshua House Foundation, Inc. Volunteer Description

Volunteer Inquiries:

Thank you for wanting to help the foster children at Joshua House by volunteering!

  • Sewing Help: We need volunteers to sew Santa/Birthday Sacks (CLICK HERE for instructions)
  • Interns: Details and how to apply can be found here: https://www.friendsofjoshuahouse.org/how-you-can-help/internships/
  • Front Desk: We need 1 or 2 volunteers to help “fill in” at our Front Desk. We currently have volunteers for each shift, but we often have openings when our weekly volunteers are unavailable. This is especially true in the summer when many travel
    Hours are 9am – 12:30pm or 12:30pm – 4pm
    Monday thru Friday only – days vary week by week.
  • Pick-up & Delivery Volunteers: We are blessed to have Chick-fil-A and KFC donate to us every week, but we need to pick up from their locations in Lutz and bring to Joshua House. This happens on Mondays (CFA only) and Fridays (CFA & KFC). The 2 restaurants are across the “street” from each other and volunteers would use their own vehicle, bring the food into the kitchen and put it away in the freezers. Again, we have “regular” volunteers for this, but there are MANY dates in the coming months that we need help.
  • Library Elf: We have a library at Joshua House and we need a volunteer to come in a minimum of once per week on a weekday to put away books that have been borrowed, shelve any books that have been donated and make the library as inviting as possible for our kids.
  • Weekly volunteers: We would love to have 1 or 2 volunteers that would come in once per week on the same day/time that would be willing to do whatever is needed: help in the library, cover the Front Desk, handle the recycling in the Administration building, launder the kitchen rags, clean the kitchen, make calls to donors, wrap presents….and the list goes on….

If we do not have any opportunities for you at this time, we will add your email to our distribution list and will contact you with volunteer opportunities when they arise. Currently, we do not have any individual volunteering opportunities working directly with the children.

Also, please note: We are unable to accommodate short-term volunteers needing hours for college classes or community service. Although we appreciate your interest, we do not have the staff to train/supervise short-term volunteers. Thank you for understanding.
